Hi, hello, I’m reporting from the media room at JPL for the #InSight #MarsLanding. From now on until it’s over I’m going to keep my Twitter feed clean of anything except landing-related news. I’ll likely do a Q and A on Twitter today after the post-landing press briefing.
Here is my landing timeline:

Julie Werz Chen reports from mission control they've heard from Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and are in telemetry lock with both MarCO-A and -B. This is promising for receiving telemetry from InSight via the cubesats live throughout the landing. #InSight #MarsLandingDay

While we prepare for the landing tomorrow, let me just say...I am tired.
But seriously-we take successes in space for granted. NASA has had a good string of luck but make no mistake, landing anything on Mars is wildly dangerous and difficult. The work that goes into planning this would blow your mind. #MarsLanding
Tomorrow’s event isn’t just landing a spacecraft on Mars to learn about a planet, it’s hundreds of peoples years of their lives. It’s a quest to find another puzzle piece in our solar systems history. It’s daring and scary and necessary. #MarsLanding

La France sur Mars. A Thread.
#SEISsurMars #Insight #MarsLAnding
Comme vous le savez certainement, ce lundi un instrument français🇫🇷, SEIS (@InSight_IPGP) se pose sur Mars, amené par la sonde américaine @NASAInSight. Mais ce n'est pas le premier œil français sur cette planète.
Soyons honnêtes, si la France a rapidement eu une fusée en état de marche, l'exploration planétaire c'est compliqué. Du coup, Mars est resté très longtemps la chasse gardée (et l'objet d'une rivalité) des américains et soviétiques.
